  • Believe it or not I'm a little torn on this. I find her actions deplorable and repulsive. She brought that child from Russia with the promise of a better life. She is abusing him no doubt. On the other hand, the video exists because she turned to Dr. Phil for help. She realized what she was doing was wrong and was reaching out for help. I'm not saying she should get away with it I'm just concerned this may discourage other abusers from asking for help

  • hot sauce and cold showers??!! come on. she obviously had the money to have 6 kids and to adopt from russia so why in the hell didnt she get some help for the boy like behavior therapy for cousuling. sound to me like she didnt want him she wanted the brother but they were a packaged deal. that is cruel just plain cruel to a child.

  • GOOD!! She was unnecessarily cruel. IF her daughter hadn't taken and then sent that video in, who would have known?? Would it have come out when the kid started acting out violently? That poor child is going to need serious therapy to get over the hell she put him through.
